I still love dyeing and I do it whenever I can. I haven’t had much time lately to do what I love and I am feeling pretty down about it. I gave myself this birthday present.
I went to JoAnns in Staten Island and I bought a ton of muslin. That’s really all they had. Oh and dupioni silk that was $24 a yard. I refused even though I love silk dupioni.
I started with yellow and then golden oak. I got this
I have to admit I wasn’t crazy about it.
So back in it went. First I folded one piece up like a big fat spanakopita.
I stuffed the other two in a jar
I poured turquoise over both and went to work Here’s what I got
what a transformation!!! the colors changed after the second dye pot. absolutely beautiful!! can’t wait to see more.
I carried home some big heavy box addressed to you… so I expect to see more dying.
